JAK to the future: a patient-centric choice in UC

We are bringing together Professors Ailsa Hart, Raja Atreya and Alessandro Armuzzi face to face in Vienna, as well as virtually, for this hybrid Galapagos-sponsored satellite symposium at UEG Week 2022.
  • Interested in integrating advances in oral treatment options into your practice for moderate-to-severe UC?
  • Want to gain practical guidance and discuss real-world experiences about the appropriate use of a preferential JAK1 inhibitor in the clinic?
  • Keen to know what the experts think about how JAK inhibitors can influence the management of moderate-to-severe UC?

Make sure to join our internationally renowned panel as they discuss these topics, share their experiences from the clinic and answer your questions.

We look forward to welcoming you at 12:30 CEST in meeting room Strauss 2 and online!

This symposium has been funded and organised by Galapagos.
This symposium is intended for an international audience, and is not affiliated with UEG.
